    Smart, supportive and highly ethical colleagues. Supportive management. Great brand. If you are interested in legal recruiting at all, you need to try to work for this firm. The recruiters are truly dedicated to delivering great value to clients and to treating candidates with the professionalism and respect they deserve. This work atmosphere is great - the folks here work hard and play hard. People genuinely try to help each other.


    It's a commission business so it can be tough. The benefits are good, the company values are great and there is lots of room for professional growth. If this were a salaried job, it would be perfect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with us a bit more about the strategic vision. The annual meeting is great but we need to hear more than once a year.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Major Lindsey & Africa in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process went well. The people at MLA are nice but they do lack some basic information about the job and the interviewers that they are seeking candidates for. For example, one MLA individual stated that an attorney I was interviewing with specialized in a particular area of law and the interviewer had never worked in that area of law. It was misleading and caused a quirky interview.
